Samsung officially shared the names of its Galaxy phones that will receive the stable Android 10 update. The list includes the timeframe and names of the devices that will be receiving the update. But it doesn’t include Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 in the list and this reflects the two devices may not receive the update. This means Samsung might have indirectly confirmed the unavailability of the latest update to the two devices.
The company’s official Android 10 update starts rolling out from January 2020 for most of the countries. The update will start rolling out for the Galaxy S10 series in January followed by Note 10 and Note 9 as well.
But it is disappointing to note that the owners with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 won’t receive the update. However, according to the company’s policy of offering two major Android OS updates to the devices, the said phones are not eligible to take the follow the suite.
Note that there is no official announcement that the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, so it may be possible that Samsung plans to bring the update for them. But don’t tie any hopes to it.
The official roadmap of the Android 10 update will run until September 2020 and the Tab A 10.5 will be the last device to get the update.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is available at Amazon Marketplace for $ 268.
- The Samsung Galaxy S8 is available at Amazon Marketplace for $ 227. The price/quality is avarage but this is the best device in this price range.
